Its Back to School Time....

Platypus Creek Digitals style:

An Apple for Teacher

For this card, I colored the child in with Copic Markers (E00, E01, B26, B24, E13, Y11, Y13).
I also used Reflections paper (green card stock, white card stock, and "Apples").
I inked the green paper with Encore Champagne colored ink and used Spellbinders for the green and apple paper design. The embossing of the white part of the card is from Sizzix.
If you look close, I used some glitter glue/Stickles on the eyes, buttons, and apple stem which came from Close to My Heart.
Cant wait to show you the next big announcement from Platypus Creek Digitals.....

A sudden change........

Well, there has been a 'sudden change' in my crafty life. Thought I would share. Due to a break down in communication and some differences of opinions, I will no longer be on the Creative Kuts Design Team.

There was one last creation I had made with a Creative Kuts file (Guess who is coming to dinner)

Its not just a turkey, an iris folded turkey, that is an easel card and (although you cant see it in this picture), there is a drawer under the card. So there are four techniques in this card. Wait - you only count three.

1. Iris Fold
2. Easel Card
3. Drawer under the card

Oh forgot to mention, there is a brad on the drawer as a drawer pull. That brad started off as blue, and I changed it through heat emboss to make it green. There is 4!

The paper used for the Iris Fold is the Dotty paper from Close to My Heart. The brad, heat gun, and embossing powder was from them as well. Click on Close to My Heart to go to my website to order your supplies to make this adorable card. Dont know how to make this card? Just ask. I can make a video. Dont know how to Iris Fold? Again, just ask - can do a video on that too. Anything you dont know, just ask. A video posted right here or even on my website is sure to come.
So what happens now????
I am now on the design team for Platypus Creek Digitals. You will love the challenges and the pictures of what is to come from them.............
